So after that Mongolian find, the YouTube train brought on some Soviet synthpop.


It started with a generic feel but started to pick up, especially with a fine vocalist. Each subsequent listen feels more sublime than the prior. Another interesting feature is the seriousness of the audience. Clearly into it, with none of the mosh pit carnival nature of the Anglosphere.

So it turns out Alliance was a pretty big band in the USSR. Small studio audience in that, wondering what if any criteria for tickets to that show. Did they have any big concerts? What did a Soviet era concert look like?

Rock music in Russia - Wikipedia
Quote:
During the early 1980s Soviet authorities started to exert heavy pressure on amateur bands, banning underground concerts as a sort of illegal commercial activity, and even imprisoning some music promoters and sound engineers for earning money from underground concerts. At the same time, several rock clubs were established[by whom?] to allow amateur bands to perform legal concerts.
oh.

And that super serious audience?
Quote:
In Russian, the original meaning of word "рок" is "fate" or "doom". The word is used almost exclusively in fiction, especially poetry (more widely used synonym is "судьба"). These correlate with the poetic roots of Russian rock and its attention to "serious" topics.
:chin:

It also leaves me mildly saddened with this example of a lot of cultural stuffs lost or unshared for decades due to closed borders. But hey, we got the internet now and a great frontier of cultural sharing dawns, amirite?

Been on a bit of a GHEEE-tar nostalgia kick. Today, it's the late great Stevie Ray Vaughn:

Because of the nature of my hearing loss, I no longer enjoy listening to music. I cannot even hear most birds.

Pagey is NOT jamming on his red double necked Gibson EDS-1275 as shown in the still image for the video, but rather his single necked Gibson Les Paul Standard he bought from Joe Walsh in 1969, the guitar he generally referred to as Number One.

Classic bait and switch. Classic ROCK bait and switch, rather. :yup:

Now watch Jimmy Page lose five pounds in 9 minutes and 10 seconds.

I am becoming hooked on vocal coach reaction videos on youtube. There are millions; it seems to have become pretty popular. One angle is to pick a song you know well and watch someone listening to it for the first time and providing 'expert' reactions. Another is to use it as an introduction to songs you don't know by bands you know something of. And then I suppose it could be fun to go with totally new stuff though I haven't done much of that yet.

They seem to get most of their ideas from comments made by followers, so naturally it's the bigger and better known songs.

Example.


Floorgasm.

Obviously you have to ignore the don't forget to like subscribe and share shit that every yootoober is compelled to include.

eta: omg: Not a vocal coach, but an 8 year old girl in a unicorn onesie. (same song, this is what you get from following links)

Xzibit performs with Within Temptation ... and dammit it works. Cool video too.

Red pill rabbit hole time. Reactions to reactions to reactions ... it's reacception.

A vocal coach posted a reaction to Brendan Urie of Panic! at the Disco.
Brendan Urie then posted a reaction to the reaction.
And this is the vocal coach reacting to that reaction to her original reaction.


There's talking over talking and talking over singing and pausing at multiple levels, and lots of exclamations of love.

These guys are coming to town late next month, and having checked them out for awhile, I'm really looking forward to it. They're a Polish prog/metal band that's been around since the early 2000s.


Pretty tasty stuff. Haven't seen a band that uses a theremin in concert since we saw Brian Wilson years ago.

Things are looking up concert-wise. King Crimson is here in September and The Pineapple Thief is coming in December. That's two chances in three months to see Gavin Harrison drum live.

I continue to listen to Amorphis.

is thoroughly death metal in the title and the harsh/growl vocals, which is def not to everyone's taste, but the guitar riff and the clean vocals and the backing choir are thoroughly melodic ... and then there's a saxophone solo in the middle (yes really), and a section of spoken Finnish. Very atmospheric.

The lyrics made me think of Poe, and not just because ravens, but also the overall dark dream air. I assumed it was something based on the Finnish epic Kalevala, which lots of their songs are ... but no ... in an interview I learned it's based on a dream the lyricist's mother had! And also that the lyricist (poet Pekka Kainulainen, who does the spoken Finnish part, and has worked with them for several albums) isn't a metal fan.

Quote:
She spoke to me, approaching me
On a road so dark and dreary
Her black halo walked by me
Disappearing so far behind

She travelled not alone
An old wife followed on her side
And snakes crawled behind her steps
And crows circled overhead

Time and again they come to me
In the darkness of the night
And the raven-haired girl
Whispers her listless words

...
moar lyrics
